The Farmington River Watershed Association’s (FRWA)  24th Annual Farmington River Clean-up is set for  Oct. 1,  from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Clean-up is designed to get people and  groups of all ages involved in cleaning up litter along the banks of the  Farmington River and its tributaries.  Several meeting sites will be  actively cleaning the banks of the River in Avon, Barkhamsted,  Burlington, Farmington, Granby, and Simsbury. Garbage bags and gloves  are provided to all participants, through donations from local  businesses and stores and underwriting by Stanley Black & Decker.

After the Clean-up, volunteers are invited to FRWA’s headquarters for  a family picnic where refreshments, sandwiches and pizza will be  served.  In addition, FRWA will pick the winner of our Guild Guitar  Raffle.  FRWA’s office is located at 749 Hopmeadow Street in Simsbury.  The Farmington River Watershed Association, a non-profit  organization working to conserve and protect water quality and quantity,  habitat and recreational access within the Farmington River watershed,  coordinates this event.
